Caribbean Beach Resort Guests Offered Gift Card for Construction Inconveniences 
by: guide4wdw - Collin

In a surprising development, Disney appears to be offering guests staying at their Caribbean Beach Resort a compensation for construction inconveniences. As a result of guests dealing with the large scale construction at Caribbean Beach, Disney is providing every guest room with a $75 Disney Gift card and will be taking necessary steps to maintain a great resort experience for all guests staying on the property. However, these gift card "compensations" will only be given to guests staying after May 1st. As you can imagine, many guests will be thrilled by this, while others may be quite unhappy about the construction. Other resorts will also be undergoing construction in the coming months, so it will be interesting to see how that plays out. These compensations are very rare from the Disney company, but with so many things closed at the resort, it may very well be a necessary step to ensure guest satisfaction.

Here's a look at what the letter sent to future guests states:       

"Thank you for choosing the Walt Disney World Resort as your vacation destination!

The future of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort is being reimagined. While we recognize this will cause a degree of disruption to your stay, we are making every effort to ensure that your visit to Walt Disney World is magical. 

As shared previously, please be aware that Old Port Royale Food Court, Shutters at Old Port Royale, Banana Cabana Pool Bar and Calypso Trading Post will be closed for refurbishment during your visit. 

There will be a variety of dining options available to you for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 
• Centertown, a dining location, will serve a Caribbean-style buffet for breakfast and a la carte dinner offerings. 
• A selection of grab-and-go meals will be conveniently available for purchase throughout the day in three new island markets located in the Aruba, Jamaica and Martinique regions of the Resort. 
• In-room dining will remain available. The menu includes pizza, sandwiches and pasta. 
• Disney dining plans will be accepted for these offerings. 
• Dining locations will make every effort to assist you with your dietary needs. 

Additionally, you will still be able to make a splash at our feature pool—Fuentes del Morro Pool—or at one of our leisure pools during your stay. 

Please note that noise will be heard while our Resort is being reimagined, but noise should not be heard from your Guest room between dusk and 9:00am daily.

As a thank you for your continued patronage, you will be receiving a $75 Disney Gift Card per room for each night of your stay upon check-in at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
